SAVED BY TRANSFUSION — Mrs. Paul Tomlinson of Salem, N. Y., took her 10- day-old Kathi Lynn home from Albany Medical Center Hospital, grateful that doctors performed a blood transfusion while the baby was in the mother's womb. Kathi is an "Rh-baby," since her mother had Rh-negative blood and her father Rh-positive. Their last child was stillborn. -AP wirephoto LBJ Wants Congress to Hustle Now to Cut '66 Election Year Session Charge 3 with Raping Policeman's Daughter LOS ANGELES— UPi —The Los Angeles County Grand Jury heard 35 minutes of testimony from the alleged victim—the teenage daughter of a police lieutenant—and later indicted three youths on charges of forcible rape. Two other youths were charged in the indictments with aiding and abetting the I alleged rapists. The principal witness, Shirley Diane O'Neal, 19, reportedly maintained her composure during her testimony. Earlier she had been in what police described as a state of severe emotional shock. Named in the indictments were Matthew Melville, 20; Ford Wood, 20; Wood's broth er, Ronald, 21; Eric Forrest, 19, and George Ulatowski, 18. The indictments charged that forcible rape was committed by Melville, Ford Wood and Ulatowski and that the rapist was aided and abetted, in each instance, by the others. Under California law, aid- ng and abetting a forcible rape is a felony carrying the same penalty as rape—three years to life imprisonment. Miss O'Neal was accompanied to the jury session by Mr. and Mrs. Harlan Flock, identified as neighbors. —AP Wirephoto SHIRLEY O'NEAL ... Remains Calm . . . Her father, Lt. Thomas. E. O'Neal, 41, is free on $3,300 bail after he assertedly shot and seriously wounded Carl E. Norman, 21, at the West Valley Police Station July 2. Norman was under questioning about the alleged June 29 assault but has since been cleared of suspicion in the case. O'Neal, who is under suspension, is charged with assault with intent to commit murder. RACINE SUNDAY lULLETIN yA Sunday, July 11, 1965 w/\ Chances for Errors Heighfened Elaborate Precautions Are Planned in Printing of Intricate U.S. Stamp WASHINGTON— (JPi —The tightest security money can buy has been ordered to ensure that nobody makes a killing on an intricate commemorative stamp to be issued next month. Electric eyes, mechanical fingers and keen-eyed human beings are on guard against a repetition of the "Dag Ham- marskjold stamp crisis" of 1962—when a printing error made some stamps potentially [valuable to collectors. The vivid, tri-colored Florida quadricentennial now being printed goes on sale Aug. 128. For the Bureau of Engraving and Printing and the Post Office Department, it's a philatelic first. Three Press Runs Never before has a stamp required three separate passes through the big presses in order to complete the design. Because of the layout and colors of the Florida stamps, three sets of engraved plates —and three press runs—^will be required. This increases the possibil- bility of error and has the skilled government printers on their toes. FOUND FALLS Venezuela's Angel Falls was discovered in 1935, when Jimmy Angel, an American soldier of fortune, flew up the Carrao River in search of gold. The falls plunge more than 3,000 feet. Finish 'Prospectus for Planning' for State Ice Age Scientific Reserve By Jack Bell (AP Political Affairs Writer) WASHINGTON — UP) — President Johnson is pressing Congress to enact this year as much of his legislative program as possible in order to shorten its 1966 election-year session. But Senate Democratic leader Mike Mansfield of Montana still is aiming for adjournment by Labor Day, even if that means postponing action on some presidential proposals until next year. Sen. Warren G. Magnusori, D-Wash., chairman of the Democratic Senatorial Committee, disclosed Saturday that Johnson pointed out at a recent White House conference that the more work Congress does now the less it is likely to have to do next year when all House and 34 Senate seats will be at stake in the elections. Magnuson said, however, that Johnson was not insisting either that Congress lengthen its current session or that it act on every one of his recommendations before it quits. Mansfield Comments Mansfield said in a separate interview Congress may leave some controversial matters hanging. With regard to these, he had this to say: "We'll do the best we can, but still try to get out of here by Labor Day." Mansfield noted that, with actions this week. Congress has enacted or brought near to final action what he called the "Big Four" of presidential recommendations. He listed these as Appalachia aid, educational aid for grade and high schools, voting rights and health and hospital care for the elderly. The latter two measures have been passed by both houses in different form. Chief difference on the voting rights measure, which the House passed by a 333-85 vote, lies in a House-approved 1 provision for abolishing poll taxes in state and local elections. The Senate rejected such a proposal. President Johnson and Atty. Gen. Nicholas Katzenbach have indicated they fear it is unconstitutional. Approve Medicare The Senate passed by a 6821 vote a measure providing broad protection against medical expenses for citizens over 65 and increasing all Social Security checks. The House had passed a different version, containing the same essential features by a 313-115 vote. The Senate pumped into the 12 Passengers Laud Pilot for His Emergency Landing LONG BEACH, Calif. —(JP) —A pilot who formerly held both speed and altitude records drew high praise from 12 passengers when he made a flawless emergency landing in an amphibious aircraft in Ala mitos Bay. William B. Bridgeman, 48, was at the controls of a Catalina Channel Airlines plane 'when it developed engine trouble. Singapore Peaceful on Prophet's Birthday SINGAPORE, Malaysia — iJP) — People kept off Singapore's streets Saturday and the prophet Mohammed's birthday—the signal last year for bloody race riots—passed without incident. Most of the 1.8 million people of the big southeast Asian city stayed indoors. Shops remained closed and shuttered. Food markets opened briefly in the morning. Strong squads of police roamed the city throughout the day and a large riot prevention group patrolled an area where Singapore's Malay Moslems staged a religious rally. "We were on our way back from Catalina," Bridgeman said. "We lost a gas cap and the air sucked all the fuel out on the port side, causing the engine to fail." The plane was scheduled to land at Long Beach Municipal Airport, but Bridgeman decided that the bay looked good. "Why drag in over housetops on one engine and take a chance?" he asked later. Witnesses said the plane had only about 30 feet of clearance on either side of the wingtips when Bridgeman set down near Chrisman's landing. He taxied toward the beach and his passengers waded ashore. Bridgeman flew the Doug[las Skyrocket to 79,494 feet and 1,238 m.p.h. in 1952. Both were records at the time. measure additional benefits which would bring its first full year outlays to about $7.5 billion, nearly $3 billion more than Johnson originally suggested and $1.5 billion more than projected in the House bill. While leaders expected no major difficulties in reaching compromises on these measures, they are well aware that trouble lies ahead on presidential proposals to expand the coverage of the Minimum-Wage Act and to amend the Taft-Hartley Act to take away the authority of the states to outlaw the open shop. Expect Counter Amendments Magnuson said he was informed that opponents of this latter proposal are going to counter with amendments to put labor unions under the antitrust laws. "That's going to cause some real flak around here," he observed. Also hanging over the session is the threat of a filibuster by Senate liberals against a proposed constitutional amendment to permit the voters of each state to decide if they wish to apportion one House of their legislature on a basis other than that of population. Senate Republican leader Everett M. Dirksen of Illinois is having trouble getting this out of the Senate Judiciary Committee and it could die on the vine there. Still on the agenda for action in this session are measures to provide a housing program with rent subsidies, create an urban affairs department, double the antipoverty program and to provide aid to higher education. There will be farm legislation but literally nobody can forecast its final form at this point. There is a fight ahead over foreign aid appropriations. If Congress adjourns by Labor Day, it is almost certain to leave some of the president's program resting on the shelf for 1966 consideration. WASHINGTON — UP) • The National Park Service and the Wisconsin Conservation Department have completed a "prospectus for planning" for the Ice Age Scientific Reserve in Wisconsin, it was announced Saturday. French Offer Help to Chile PARIS —(/P)— Pres. Eduardo Frei of Chile took official leave of Pres. Charles de Gaulle Saturday ending a three-day visit that netted offers of help in several fields. De Gaulle granted Frei three personal interviews. During the first one, he decorated Frei with the Grand Cross of the Legion of Honor. The general atmosphere of the visit was reportedly warm. De Gaulle was reportedly more impressed by Frei during his South American visit last year than any other leader he met. The aims of both countries in their relations with the United States overlap. Chile would like to find some other source of aid and encouragement, and France would like to ofer that alternative. A joint communique said France offered Chile help in economic, commercial, cultural and technical fields. This included financing, accelerating industrialization and sending engineering and other experts. A bill authorizing the Ice Age Reserve, sponsored by Rep. Henry Reuss, D-Wis., and former Rep. Lester Johnson of Wisconsin, was passed by Congress last year. Congress appropriated $50,000 to finance the plan. The prospectus, Reuss said in a statement, has been drawn up by Ronald Lee, northeast region National Park Service director, and Lester Voigt, director of the Wisconsin Conservation Department. First deadline, Sept. 1965, will be for field reconnaissance and collection of basic data. This will involve the definition of boundaries of [larger units of the reserve, including lands in Fond du Lac, Sheboygan, Sauk and Chippewa counties. A final report is to be submitted to federal and state officials in Feb., 1966. One of the monumental stamp controversies of all time blew up around former Postmaster Gen. J. Edward Day in the fall of 1962. Four sheets of Hammarskjold commemoratives came off the presses with their yellow field upside down. Error Re-printed When Day learned that some collectors were about to cash in on the error—the department's first stamp error since 1918—he ordered several more million inverts printed, thus washing out the value of the original few. Day earned the undying enmity of many stamp hobbyists. The Florida stamp depicts a Spanish warrior in black against a red background broken by golden castle battlements and a gold banner. Tiny black sailing ships against the red background add to the intricacy of the design—and to the possibility of error. State Road Toll Is Boosted by I (By the Associated Press) The death of a young Wausau area man has raised Wisconsin's 1965 traffic toll to 458, compared with 504 on July 10, 1964. Joseph R. Wilk Jr., 22 of rural Wausau died Saturday in a two-car crash at the junction of Highway 45-47 and Oneida County Trunk Q north of Pelican Lake. Occupants of the other vehicle were uninjured. A previously reported victim was Bruce Lipofski, 16, of Menomonee Falls, who died Saturday when his bicycle I was struck by a car. Noted Jazz Pianist, Technician Is Ailing NEW YORK —UP)— Bud Powell, the musician who pioneered many of the techniques for modern jazz piano, was in critical condition Saturday in Brooklyn's Cumberland Hospital. A hospital spokesman said that although the 41-year-old Negro musician was unconscious, "He had several visitors during the day." He was believed suffering with pneumonia. About a year ago Powell returned to the United States after a lengthy residence in France. He played at the famed Birdland in Manhattan shortly before it closed last year. BECOMING EXTINCT In the United States, the whooping crane, California condor, ivory-billed woodpecker, timber wolf and bighorn sheep all are in danger of extinction. HEARING PROBLEM?
